Funky Chicken with Sesame Noodles

Serving Size : 8


Sesame Noodles
1 lb spaghettini -- (get the thinnest spaghetti you can find)
1/2 cup soy sauce
1/4 cup sesame oil
1/3 cup sugar
3 scallions -- thinly sliced
1/4 cup sesame seeds
Funky Chicken
1/4 cup soy sauce
1/4 cup teriyaki sauce
2 cloves garlic -- minced
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon ginger -- fresh chopped (or 1/4 teaspoon dried)
4 chicken breasts -- boneless, skinless
sesame oil -- for sauteeing

First make the sesame noodes: Cook the spaghetti according to package

Drain (I also rinse).

In a jar, add the soy sauce, sesame oil and the sugar.

Shake until well blended and the sugar has dissolved.

Pour this over the pasta.

Toss with scallions and sprinkle with the sesame seeds.

Set aside while you marinate and then cook the chicken.

Funkying the chicken: In a bowl mix the soy sauce, teriyaki sauce, garlic,
brown sugar and the ginger.

Make sure the sugar has pretty much dissolved.

Add the chicken, making sure it's all coated with the sauce.

Cover and stick in the fridge for 2-3 hours.

Remove the chicken from the marinade, and toss out the marinade left at
the bottom of the bowl.

Heat the sesame oil in a large non-stick pan.

Add the chicken in batches and saute for about 10 minutes, or until done,
adding more sesame oil as needed.

Remove the chicken from the pan and let cool slightly.

Slice the chicken diagonally into thin strips.

Serve the chicken over the sesame noodles.

Stand back and watch your guests/children/loved ones inhale this dish.

"This has to be one of the most amazing chicken dishes I have ever
made or eaten. It's really scary to watch people just attack this dish
and practically inhale it in one breath. Brush up on your Heimlich
Maneuver, people do get a little over-enthusiastic"
